>i won’t be here for a while, it’s spring break and i’m gonna spend the week with my brothers and my sis in my dad’s place. i might also go up the ranch, i heard cousins dan and meg are there with their kansas friends.

but of course, i won’t leave without telling a story 🙂


creepy as it may sound, but i’m beginning to like country music. when i say country music, i mean COUNTRY music. not jewel-, dixie chicks- or sheryl crow-country, but brad paisley-, keith urban-, sara evans-country!

here’s a preview of the country music that doesn’t make it to asia, see left panels for you’ll think of me by urban.


the last week of classes before the break was kinda great. everything was fine, i even enjoyed my management classes. my very last class, managerial accounting, i ended up staying a bit later. i waited til the teacher dismissed the class, and that’s when i asked her a question about budgets. anyway, we had a pretty long discussion about it and left her in the classroom feeling contented with her answers. she certainly knows her accounting!

well, i was e-mailing with bibba through my phone that time and told her about it. at aba, she asked me if i was arguing with my teacher! i was like… like… see, i’m out of words! kiko? out of words? HA! anyway, sent a text message to everyone here (everyone = rey and ate in), asking them if kiko is synonymous to argument. rey gave me a sensible reply: kiko, you are not synonymous to argument. kiko defines argument.

i rest my case.


was able to call up my mom last saturday night during work. i called some time earlier that week but she asked me to call her again on a sunday in calingatan so i could talk to my inay. so i did and to my surprise, everyone was there!

my cousin ralph picked up. my mom told me he’s graduating from grade school already. and then i talked to inay first since i’m here paboritong apo, HAHAHA! that’s how my cousins call me after i was spending so much time with her before going here to the US, and that’s after the mc donald’s ad. then, my favorite cousin, ate juliet, picked up and was asking if i could swing by canada this coming december since she’ll be there for a vacation (she’s living in london). even my cousin ate ella was there, she went home for her daughter’s graduation from high school. then, mom told me about my cousin michael’s wedding. i was a bit surprised and blown away since he’s only twenty. but hey, that’s his life.


monday early morning was a bit bad though. as much as i want to talk about it, i just won’t. funny how bibba was able to sense it right away, considering she has no idea what it is about. ate in wants to ask about it, but she knows better than asking me about something i don’t want to talk about. same goes with leo.


it has been a topsy-turvy weekend, a roller coaster of feeling elated and shitty. but at least i’m going to see my bros and my sis later tonight, hopefully that would cheer me up.

sigh… never felt so fucked up.
